Werewolves of Melbourne


When did you first start making music and what led you there? The band was formed in 2014 at Lucky Coq in Prahran. It was predominately a blues band playing covers, then lead vocalist Zevon Hiltz and the band started writing originals during that summer and four years later our second instalment has arrived.

How would you describe your sound and how has it changed/grown over time? The band’s sound is a psychedelic-blues infused creation, with hints of ‘70s funk and dirty rock ‘n’ roll. But it’s best to come see a live show, buy the album and make up your own mind.

Tell us about your album Crossing The River. What is the story behind it? What inspired it? Crossing The River was recorded down at Nicky Bomba’s studio Freebourgh Station. The band recorded 15 tracks and it was then was cut down to the best ten.

What can we expect from your live show? A group of musicians laying it all on the line to give the songs the respect they deserve. You will end up tapping into your primal gene and “howling” throughout the show as that is what lead singer and guitarist Zevon demands from his audience.

What do you love about making music? The freedom of expression and the ability to connect with an audience via the songs we play. It’s a great release and I could think of nothing better than to get together with the band and smash out a set of original tunes.
